No matter if your patio doors are a sliding glass door or stylish French doors, a trait they share is their large windows that provide you an excellent view outside. However, that much glass can come with some issues, such as heat loss, privacy, and sun glare. That's why you need the right window treatment to get the most out of your windows.

Find out why home plantation shutters are the best patio door window treatments in Chicago and how they can mitigate these common issues!

The Most Functional Sliding Door Window Treatments For Chicago

Sliding patio doors in Chicago.

Sliding glass doors are a popular patio door for many homeowners in Chicago. As their name indicates, sliding patio doors usually include two or more full-size windows, one of which slides over the other. While they invite in a lot of natural light, they are also one of the most frustrating doors to cover. So much glass means a ton of heat loss and privacy issues -- not to mention the glare if your backyard faces east or west.

The best sliding glass patio door window treatments in Chicago are plantation shutters. These shutters don’t fasten to the door itself but instead glide in front of it. When sun glare turns into an annoyance, move the shutters in front of the door and adjust the louvers to direct light -- or close them completely for total privacy. Most sliding door shutters are fabricated from faux wood, including our Polywood® shutters, so you also see energy-efficiency benefits.

Sliding door shutters provide durability and easy operation, thereby permitting continual use of the patio. The most familiar design of shutters on a sliding door is Bypass. Bypass shutters slide behind one another on a track to open the doorway.

The Best French Door Window Treatments For Chicago

Patio Doors with Plantation Shutters in Chicago

If you lack a sliding glass door opening out onto your outdoor space, you may have another common door type: French doors. This style of entryway has twin doors that open out from each other. The result may be a bit more elegant than a sliding glass or typical door, but they have the same problems. Large pieces of glass permit energy loss and sun glare.

It is no wonder that wood substitute plantation shutters also prove to be the bestFrench door window treatments in Chicago. They have the same beauty, durability, and energy-efficiency that sliding door shutters have, except they can attach directly onto the French door frame. Consequently, your French door plantation shutter operates a lot more like your common window shutters, and you don’t have to push them to the side to go through the door.
